Fine lines and wrinkles can be caused by constant movement of facial muscles or may be caused by loss of underlying facial fat over time. To maintain a natural look, Dr. Richter will assess each patient’s individual needs to decide the best option to help relax dynamic wrinkles and refill creases. Dr. Richter may use Botox and/or Juvederm XC products to achieve the ideal results desired. Botox temporarily blocks nerve impulses in the muscles. This relaxes the facial muscles and lessens their ability to contract and pull the skin into wrinkles. The Botox treatment typically takes about 15 minutes and lasts about 3- 6months on average. Juvederm XC is a specialized hyaluronic acid dermal filler used to fill creased lines, replace lost fat, or plump lips. We choose the best product for each location (Juvederm Ultra Plus XC, Juvederm Voluma, Juvederm Volbella, etc. The filler treatment usually takes about 15-30 minutes and usually lasts about 9 months – 2 years, depending upon the filler product and location of filler. Dr. Richter would love to consult patients about their areas of concern to discuss the best treatment. The consult fee can be applied to the treatment if same day treatment is desired. We also participate in the ALLE rewards program for our patients!
